Flying Fish Red Fish Review: Bitter Summer Perfection

Bottle: As the name suggests, it is red. The cap, neck and main label are all red with the skeleton of a fish with propellors on either side.

Pour: Medium reddish brown color with floating pulp throughout.

Flavor: A bitter taste with an underlying hint of nut and pine.

Aroma: Very placid scent. Hoppy and a bit of pine.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is crisp and satisfying with significant carbonation.

Structure: Layered and textured structure. Starts as a nice nippy bitter and evolves in to a nice full bodied and robust pine.

Food Pairing: Enjoy it with a large meal. Red meat is recommended as this beer seems best suited for washing down a sizable portion.

Overall: Straight forward enjoyment. Red Fish is a fantastic beer that has just the right amount of bitter and texture. It doesn’t surprise but far from disappoints on any level. I can easily say its one of my favorite beers this summer and despite a small amount of text in this review, it stands as a delicious brew that I won’t soon forget.
